A great dane is often referred to as a Gentle Giant or the Apollo Of Dogs, and they definetly live up to those names. Great Danes are often found snuggled up on their owners laps in as tiny of a ball as physically possible. Danes tower over most other dogs—and when standing on their hind legs, they are taller than most people. The picture of elegance and balance with gentle temperaments too!
Great Danes come in 7 colors which include Harlequin, Mantle, Merle / Merle Mantle, Black, Fawn, Blue and Brindle.
